How to get the current issue type in Behaviour serverside script

Hello everyone,

Do someone know how to get the current issue type in Behaviour serverside script?

I want to get the issue type when creating an issue, and change the option of a select field depend on its issue type.

I tried many ways, but still can't get the issue type of current creating issue, can someone help?


This is my Behaviour serverside script.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.*
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager()
def formField = getFieldByName("Test single list by Chu LIU") //option is 'A''B''C''D''1''2''3'
def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(formField.getFieldId())
def config = customField.getRelevantConfig(getIssueContext())
def options = optionsManager.getOptions(config)

if(issue.getIssueType.toString().equals("Bug")) //This line is what I want to realize, but met error

getFieldById("customfield_16607").setFieldOptions(options.findAll {it.value in ['1', '2','3']});


 Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,

I've found the answer, using this code can make it work:

String selectedIssueType = getIssueContext().getIssueTypeObject().getName()

@Meng Gedepreciated

String selectedIssueType = getIssueContext().getIssueTypeObject().getName()

Use either of this

//def ITName = underlyingIssue?.getIssueType().name
def ITName =

But below line not setting the values based on issue type. Does it work for you?


getFieldById("customfield_16607").setFieldOptions(options.findAll {it.value in ['1', '2','3']}); 

Thanks... It worked for me..

Its working if we do not have any context root. How to read the values from context root for the fields in behavior to set the values.
